Help me figure out this marinade recipe!!
It was years ago (and quite simple, really), but I made a salmon marinade that roughly consisted of soy (or teriyaki?), brown sugar, and ??? (Maybe one or two other ingredients.)
I'd love to make it tonight and to grill the salmon - can anyone help me out with a great recipe that has these ingredients as its base? Also looking for proper amounts of each.
Thanks in advance!!
Soy sauce, brown sugar, sherry, touch of oil, green onions, splash of Worcestershire if it still needs something. Sorry that I can't give you amounts, but I go by taste.
I don't measure either and when I grill salmon, I cook only one piece (SO doesn't like it), so I'm guessing here: 3 T soy, 1 T sugar, 1 T mirin, 1 t sesame oil, 2 t. grated peeled ginger, 1/2 t minced garlic.
Some popular ingredients for many Asian flavors:
brown sugar (or any one of - sugar, honey, corn syrup, blended asian pear)
rice vinegar (sake, rice wine, refined rice vinegar)
fresh garlic (minced, pressed, mashed, or blended)
fresh ginger (shredded, minced, crushed, or blended)
green/spring onion or scallion
My marinade is: soy sauce, lots of ginger, chili paste, shallots, rice wine vinegar, little brown sugar and I drizzle with sesame oil as soon it comes off the stove - not too much as it overpowers. I just mix them by taste.
Sounds like a pretty standard teriyaki glaze/marinade to me. The one I'm familiar with consists of teriyaki (or soy, in a pinch), brown sugar, honey, lime juice (or rice wine vinegar, if you have), as well as finely minced garlic and ginger. It's good for just about any kind of meat - I often add a splash of OJ if using it for chicken or pork.
